More multiculturalism in Victoria. I was trying to be Sly and the Family Stone. But more Irish.

lyrics

You Can’t Stop the Riverdance

Soul singer 1: When I’m feelin’ down at the bottom...
Soul singer 2: When I’m feelin’ stuck in my seat...
Soul singer 3: I find the other end of the rainbow, and start tappin’ my feet!

Soul singer 1: When I feel that downward sensation,
Soul singer 2: And everything is falling apart!
Soul singer 3: I just start moving my body, and feel the beat in my heart!

Chorus
You can’t stop the river dance! [Men: No! No! No! No!]
You can’t stop the river dance!
You can’t stop the river dance! [Men: No! No! No! No!]
You can’t stop the river dance!
Check it out!

[dance 1]

Soul singer 1.When I’m having doubts about fairies,
Soul singer 2.And ‘the bottle’ keeps calling my name!
Soul singer 3.And I can’t seem to see any rainbows, 'cause everyday is just the same...

Soul singer 1.My head just starts getting achy,
Soul singer 2.My jaw is sore from gritting my teeth
Soul singer 3.That’s when I think of Michael Flately, and the leprechauns dancing on the heath!

Chorus

[dance 2]

I got the pink hearts, yellow moons, and orange stars, and the gre-en clovers!
I got the pink hearts, yellow moons, and orange stars, and the gre-en clovers!
I got the pink hearts, yellow moons, and orange stars, and the gre-en clovers!
I got the pink hearts, yellow moons, and orange stars, and the gre-en clovers!

Chorus

[dance 3]
